Cork is an amazing natural material. In order to obtain raw materials for the production of cork coverings, it is not required to cut down trees, as it is necessary when harvesting the wood. The secret is in the unique ability of cork oak to regeneration. With a periodicity of 9 years, the bark is removed from the tree, after which the plant begins to build up a new layer again. The cork oak during its lifetime (on average it is 200 years), it removes the upper layer of the crust up to 25 times.
And due to the bark composition of the cork oak, during the cork covering production, no additional binders are used, as far as the cork oak cortex contains 45% of the suberine – the natural substance that glues cork granules under the pressure and high temperature.
Our products are the most environmentally friendly among other performed on the modern market of finishing materials. Because cork has a number of undeniable advantages, namely:
Cork is hypoallergenic because of its antistatic properties, due to which the dust on the cork coverings settles much lesser than on the others. Therefore, the cork as the finishing material is the best for highly allergic individuals and asthmatics.
Cork is surprisingly resilient material, capable of restoring the original shape after compression and punching. Due to its elasticity, the cork has the cushion effect, positively influencing the spines of those who walk on it.
Cork has excellent performance as a sound and heat insulator.
All these factors are aimed at preserving human health.
Adhering to the ecological strategy, CORK HOUSE company continues to develop and strengthen its position on the market of finishing materials made of cork.
